Cpu/gpu upgrade

Presently running a phenom2 810 (2.6) quad with a bfg 9800gt low power and 6mb of ddr3 (lsp 650w pro). Thinking of either getting a phenom2 955 (3.2) black ed. or a nvidea 250gts. Which would give me the best system upgrade? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

  1. 1) make sure your power supply can handle any new upgrades
    2) get the video card, you can OC your current CPU which is still a solid chip
    3) avoid Nvidia for now, their current prices are crazy for what you get
    4) get the ATI 4850 ($100) or 5750 ($140 + DX11) for similar performance to the GTS 250.
  2. thanks. sounds like a plan.
  3. Agree with ct1615 :)

    Whats your monitors native resolution?
  4. It"s 1280 x 1024
  5. 9800Gt is plenty for that resolution.

    No upgrade is required at the moment to run games at that resolution. :)

    Save money for now.Get a high end card later(GTS250 is faster than 9800GT but not fast enough to justify the amount of money you will spend ).
  6. thanks for the info! appreciated!
